Our adult children, aka Congress, are playing a variation of this game. Their beanbag is Obamacare and they're frantically tossing it around trying to stay in the game. Most of us have played hot potato at some point in our childhood. It's a game where players sit in a circle and toss a small object like a beanbag to each other while music plays. When the music stops, the player holding the bag is eliminated. Speaker Paul Ryan lost the first round.
Desperate, the ogre went to Putin, the dark one, to help him. The sorcerer agreed to help in return for half the kingdom. The dark one then cast a spell that reached every corner of the land, every mountaintop and valley. This spell made the people see the ogre as royalty and Princess Hillary as a witch. The people rallied to the ogre and made him king of the realm. Then they banished the witch to obscurity. Once upon a time, there was a cruel, nasty ogre, "The Donald," who dreamed of becoming king.
So I guess this guy's hate's okay because he hates the right people? After the Charlottesville mêlée, a "conservative" on Sean Hannity's radio show went off on Nazis. He called them despicable, bottom-feeders, racists, and hate-mongers. He was happy that Richard Spencer, the white supremacist, got punched during D.C. protests and all but endorsed Antifa violence , saying hate speech can't be allowed, has to be stopped.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
